Urban design in mono-material with hidden technology

ISPO Award Winner 2022: Halti Bergga Warm Parka

The Halti Bergga Warm Parka has everything a contemporary urban outdoor piece needs: it's highly functional, has plenty of style, and is also designed to be sustainable.

Halti has created the Bergga Warm Parka, a delightfully warm parka jacket that has the features of a down parka but is made from synthetic materials. The modern look is absolutely city-ready and a real highlight. The sophisticated functional construction and choice of materials reveal that an experienced outdoor brand has been at work here.

Winner of the 2022 ISPO Award: the Bergga Warm Parka by Halti.

Functional features for the city

Bergga is a functional, waterproof and windproof city parka. Most of the technology is hidden inside: the parka achieves a surprising lightness thanks to an internal construction of puffy padded 3D tunnels, between which air can circulate, but which still keep you nice and warm. Halti's signature Drymaxx® All Weather fabric, taped seams, and a double front opening are also ready for extremely inclement weather. The pockets are roomy enough to keep your bag at home. The long side zippers allow for effortless biking or getting on and off the bus with ease.

Made from mono material

The parka jacket is made from a single material, polyester, most of which has been recycled. Using mono-material means that the garment can be more easily recycled back into raw materials - meaning fewer new materials need to be produced and used. In other words, choosing mono-materials makes the recycling process more efficient and results in high-quality recycled yarn. So, when it's time to say goodbye, this parka is made for recycling!

However, in order not to compromise on technical features or durability, Halti has decided to keep the Bergga-style metal zipper slider. Halti supports a longer service life by providing replacement material for repairs.

The Bergga Warm Parka will be available for men and women from fall/winter 2022.

What convinced the jury:

  • cutting-edge design combined with technical features
  • waterproof and windproof
  • lightweight, warm and temperature-regulating thanks to the inner air channel construction
  • double storm front for cold weather
  • use of mono-material for efficient recycling
The urban style of the Bergga Warm Parka by Halti is made of mono material.
Statement from Halti:
"At Halti we are very proud of this award as it recognizes our passionate work on designing and developing more sustainable products. We want to make sure that everyone can go outdoors and enjoy the beautiful nature around us. At the same time, we want to protect and care for our environment so that many generations after us can do the same. At Halti, we are aware of our responsibility to think ahead." Hanna Koivula, designer Halti
What the jury said:
"Combining urban design with clever technical features, the Bergga Warm Parka stands out from classic winter jackets. Particularly noteworthy is the 3D tunnel construction on the inside, which provides good insulation at low weight, and the use of mono material." ISPO Award Jury
